UFC 229 salaries: Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov earn seven-figure paydays

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The Nevada Athletic Commission has released salary info for Saturday night’s UFC 229 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

As expected, the headliners will make the biggest paydays. Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor will earn a flat sum of $3,000,000 for the fight, while UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s pay is $2,000,000.

Neither competitor will earn a win bonus, and the fight purses do not include money made off pay-per-view sales.

Among the rest of the card, co-main eventer Anthony Pettis stands to make the biggest payday, as the former UFC and WEC lightweight champion would earn $290,000 with a victory over Tony Ferguson.
